Christine J. on Walking Tour of Monuments and Memor...
great being able to see everything in DC
This is an excellent walking tour path to take to see all the great monuments of DC, as well as the beautiful scenery around the Tidal Basin! It was safe and clean the entire path. We visited DC for a long weekend trip Sat-Mon. I would recommend visiting the museums on Saturday and the monuments on Sunday since they are generally open longer hours or don't require special entry like the museums do.
Biked this - fairly level, a few dips and rises here and there, but nothing horribly challenging. Just crowded as all get-out, especially as the weekend morning passed about 9 am-- and just got worse from there...So I would say go on a weekday or early morning, or just deal with the crowds.
Lots of water available at either end and in the middle at one of the rest stops.
